On Friday October 13th, one of the spookiest days of the year, the Pacific Grove Breakers took on the Soledad Aztecs at home. During the game fans came wearing pink in support of breast cancer awareness and students had the annual powder toss at halftime.
The Breakers opened the game with high hopes to turn the season around and the first play, a long completion from Ben Minik to Hunter Hanes, looked like a step in the right direction. However, after the first big play the Breakers offense was kept quiet by Soledad.
Throughout the game the Breakers defense, kept on the field by long drives from the Aztecs left the offense with not much time to work with. PG maintained no steady flow on offense resulting in a shutout in front of the faithful Breaker fans. Soledad put up 36 points despite a fantastic effort by the Breaker defense.
With senior safety Nate Lominario out due to illness senior defensive lineman Josh Vernon took a leadership role on defense and pounded on the Aztec O-line.
Despite the loss fans and students enjoyed the pink out and powder toss from the game. Students threw sacks of flour and friends and showed their support for those suffering from breast cancer.
